Storyline

The Glamour & The Squalor is the story of Marco Collins, one of America's last great rock radio DJs and a musical tastemaker that changed our culture. Before the Internet made sourcing new music and rising bands a simple matter of keystrokes and RSS feeds, there was the radio DJ. No one epitomized this role like Marco Collins. He was the on and off switch for an artist's potential career and was the gatekeeper credited for helping break the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, Weezer and countless others. Marco's story is inspiring but universal. He turned his passion for music into a significant lifetime of work and battled some seriously determined demons along the way. And he's still standing.

Excellent storytelling that captures the essence of Marco's influence
12 April 2016 | by aviannguyenSee all my reviews

Seattle has grown exponentially over the past several decades, especially in its music scene. The Glamour & the Squalor artfully illustrates Marco Collin's life as the catalyst that springboards Seattle onto the musical map. The film is stimulating with all of the textures, flavors, sounds, and acute details; truly giving the essence of Seattle justice. The well-executed story line successfully brings you to empathize with Marco, savoring his successes and commiserating in his trials. The greatest takeaway from this film for me was the message to pursue your passions fearlessly, which I think is easier said than for anyone to truly believe and do like Marco had done. A brilliant, inspiring film.
